  • PV Police hope to draw attention

    PIONEER VILLAGE - In an effort to reduce accidents and citations for violations, the Pioneer Village Police Department has created an interesting reminder to motorists.

    At the corner of Preston Highway and John Harper Highway, a wrecked vehicle has been placed along the side of the road.

    The project is a partnership with the state  transportation cabinet, which owns the property.

    Pioneer Village police chief  Dale Elliott said the wrecked vehicle was donated by  Troy’s Wrecker Service and Sign Solutions II donated the banner.

  • LJ pre-schoolers find book buddies valuable

    LEBANON JUNCTION — Every Thursday Lindy Meyer’s Lebanon Junction Elementary fourth graders open the door to a classroom full of preschoolers and their eyes light up.

    The bond between the two classes is instantly recognizable.

    With story books in hand, the fourth graders quickly break off into pairs and locate their “book buddy” — a special preschooler with whom they will share the next 20 minutes reading and bonding.

  • Tourist group to step up its enforcement on late taxes

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - When someone eats a meal in the city limits of Shepherdsville, they are paying an additional 2 percent as part of the way to fund the operation of the Paroquet Springs Conference Centre and the tourist commission.

    However, some businesses have not always paid that tax as required.

    Enforcement on the collection of the food tax falls to Shepherdsville city government, which had to allow the measure to be adopted.

  • FOP secretary suspended after arrest

    LOUISVILLE - An officeholder with the Bullitt County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 42 has been suspended after being arrested on drug charges Friday night in Jefferson County.

    Vincent Lee Redemann, 24, of Shepherdsville, was charged with possession of a controlled substance (cocaine), possession of drug paraphernalia and having expired license tags after a routine traffic stop on Preston Highway.

    A passenger, Elizabeth N. Ogle, 30, of Clermont, was also arrested for giving a false name or address and having an open alcoholic container.

  • An emotional season ends with it all left on the field

    LOUISVILLE - Football is often a game of inches.

    Those inches affect games, seasons and state championships. Just ask the Bullitt East Chargers.

    In a classic contest on Saturday in the Class 4-A Commonwealth Gridiron Bowl at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, the outcome was not decided until the last second. Two teams played hard and two teams left it all on the field.

    When the clock ticked to :00, Bell County just happened to have a 15-13 lead.

    It’s not always what you get out of an endeavor that shapes your life, but what you put into it.

  • Bad weather halts some early season hoops games

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It was supposed to be a slow start to the week anyway as area basketball teams get ready for the holiday basketball season, but bad weather early last week cut down an already slim slate of games.

    The one team that battled through the conditions were the Bullitt Central Cougars. They had an early game on Monday with Waggener that started at 6 p.m. so that game got played. The Cougars were then supposed to play Oldham County on Tuesday, but because there was no school in either school system that day, the game was pushed back and played on Wednesday.
